  kama in art

 

India

Kama is Sanskrit for ‘love’ and ‘desire’. In Hinduism this concept is personified in Kama, the Hindu god of love and desire. Besides this, it is a theme often celebrated in Hindu art, such as in the love story Kamasutra and in the erotic sculpted bas-reliefs of the Hindu-Jain temples of Khajuraho in India.
